Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

"Not a total fiasco. When Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman finally leaps into the fray, deep into the picture's second half, she more than passes the audition." ‐Reason Online

Midnight Special (2016)

"Director Nichols dipped a toe into science fiction with his 2011 Take Shelter. Now he is forthrightly saluting some of his favorite sci-fi films - chiefly Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and John Carpenter's Starman" ‐Reason Online

Eye In The Sky (2016)

"A high-tech terror-war story with a covert mission..." ‐Reason Online

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016)

"The movie attempts what may be the impossible: grafting a romantic comedy onto a war story, with go-girl uplift and some awkward cultural observations lashed on for bad measure." ‐Reason Online

Knight of Cups (2016)

"Surely director Malick knows what this movie is all about. If only he would let us in on it. " ‐Reason Online

The Witch (2016)

"Not especially horrifying, but a masterful exercise in godforsaken atmosphere. " ‐Reason Online

Zoolander 2 (2016)

"Asks the question, "Why was this movie made?" The answer is not forthcoming." ‐Reason Online
Posted Feb 12, 2016

Deadpool (2016)

"Dizzyingly scabrous, borderline offensive (alright!) and wonderfully refreshing. " ‐Reason Online
Posted Feb 12, 2016

Hail, Caesar! (2016)

"Gorgeous throughout. But the loosely structured narrative through-line isn't all that interesting..." ‐Reason Online
Posted Feb 5, 2016

The Finest Hours (2016)

"A film in which just about everything goes right--the production design, the photography, the technical effects. But the movie itself doesn't really go anywhere. " ‐Reason Online
Posted Jan 29, 2016

The 5th Wave (2016)

"I don't know about you, but when I go to an alien-invasion movie I want to see some aliens invading. " ‐Reason Online
Posted Jan 22, 2016

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016)

"The movie doesn't rise to the level of Zero Dark Thirty or American Sniper-it's short on character exploration, among other things-but it's more than run-of-the-mill action fodder." ‐Reason Online
Posted Jan 14, 2016

The Revenant (2015)

"Without the spectacular cinematography, this two and a half hour survival epic might have been an insurmountable challenge to the endurance of its audience." ‐Reason Online
Posted Jan 8, 2016

Joy (2015)

"A rare Hollywood offering-a snark-free celebration of entrepreneurial capitalism. " ‐Reason Online
Posted Dec 30, 2015

The Big Short (2015)

"The picture leaves you feeling jazzed and happy... and yet still angry and disgusted." ‐Reason Online
Posted Dec 30, 2015

The Hateful Eight (2015)

"The first half seems like Tarantino's worst movie. Then there's a plot flip, and you think: Okay, here we go. But then it goes on seeming like Tarantino's worst movie." ‐Reason Online
Posted Dec 24, 2015

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)

"Daisy Ridley, who crosses effortlessly into stardom here, has a face of the sort that cinematographers so often seek in vain." ‐Reason Online
Posted Dec 17, 2015

In the Heart of the Sea (2015)

"Whenever the movie cuts away to Melville and Nickerson, we keep wanting to get back to sea, to the listing ship and the terrified sailors. And of course the whale." ‐Reason Online
Posted Dec 11, 2015

Krampus (2015)

"It's difficult to imagine any children over the age of, say, 10 being scared by this movie. (The resentment of grownups talked into accompanying them to see it is easier to envision.) " ‐Reason Online
Posted Dec 3, 2015

Victor Frankenstein (2015)

"A cute idea, but a bad one. " ‐Reason Online
Posted Nov 25, 2015

The Danish Girl (2015)

"In the process of awarding Redmayne another nomination, Academy voters must surely take note of Vikander's more fully realized achievement. " ‐Reason Online
Posted Nov 25, 2015

Secret in Their Eyes (2015)

"The overly tricky time-shift structure leaks more and more tension the longer it goes on." ‐Reason Online
Posted Nov 20, 2015

The Night Before (2015)

"An anti-Christmas comedy that nevertheless collapses in a puddle of seasonal goo." ‐Reason Online
Posted Nov 20, 2015

Heist (2015)

"In the race to make the greatest number of crappy movies, Nicolas Cage has been De Niro's strongest competition. Now De Niro pulls way ahead." ‐Reason Online
Posted Nov 12, 2015

By The Sea (2015)

"This might not be many people's idea of a good time. It might not be anybody's." ‐Reason Online
Posted Nov 12, 2015

Spectre (2015)

"If Daniel Craig actually were contemplating an exit from the James Bond franchise, Spectre would be a handy off-ramp." ‐Reason Online
Posted Nov 6, 2015

Our Brand is Crisis (2015)

"Much of this is a lot of fun, but it needed to be a little nastier. The director's conventional sensibility keeps oozing through...." ‐Reason Online
Posted Oct 29, 2015

Burnt (2015)

"The actors are all better than you'd expect in a film of such dim ambition, but there's a curious lack of the actual scrumptious grub." ‐Reason Online
Posted Oct 29, 2015

The Last Witch Hunter (2015)

"The CGI becomes oppressive, and the story leaks energy like a gut-stuck peasant." ‐Reason Online
Posted Oct 23, 2015

Rock the Kasbah (2015)

"Does anyone really need to see Bill Murray belting out a ha-ha-awful version of "Smoke on the Water" at this late date?" ‐Reason Online
Posted Oct 23, 2015

Crimson Peak (2015)

"A mad exercise in deluxe set decoration and lush costume design. All gorgeous, but after a while it becomes much too much of a good thing." ‐Reason Online
Posted Oct 16, 2015

Bridge of Spies (2015)

"John le Carré fans might hear naptime calling as long stretches of this 141-minute movie play out." ‐Reason Online
Posted Oct 16, 2015

Steve Jobs (2015)

"Fassbender doesn't really resemble Jobs (until the end, when the mock-turtlenecks and New Balance sneaks come out), but he gives an enthralling performance as a man who truly changed the world." ‐Reason Online
Posted Oct 9, 2015

The Walk (2015)

"The movie is a marvel of complex and carefully controlled 3D digital imagery (do see it in IMAX), and as long as Petit is up on that wire, we're transfixed." ‐Reason Online
Posted Oct 1, 2015

The Martian (2015)

"Director Scott is surprisingly unsuccessful in creating an original vision of Mars-his rendition of the planet's rocky landscape might have been lifted whole from an old John Ford western." ‐Reason Online
Posted Oct 1, 2015

The Green Inferno (2015)

"Female genital mutilation may be the final frontier in gore movies, and Eli Roth has now crossed it." ‐Reason Online
Posted Sep 25, 2015

Black Mass (2015)

"Depp really is impressive. If only that were enough." ‐Reason Online
Posted Sep 18, 2015

Sicario (2015)

"Presents the never-ending War on Drugs in all of its pig-headed futility. " ‐Reason Online
Posted Sep 18, 2015

The Visit (2015)

"There's a gross-out scene that sets a new standard for PG-13 ick. " ‐Reason Online
Posted Sep 11, 2015

American Ultra (2015)

"Cute idea, but the movie can't decide whether it wants to be a full-on action flick or a goofball comedy, and it never finds a unifying tone." ‐Reason Online
Posted Aug 21, 2015

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015)

"The actors give the impression of having met just moments before the cameras started rolling." ‐Reason Online
Posted Aug 14, 2015

The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015)

"Bel Powley navigates the movie's nudity and non-graphic sex scenes with deadpan aplomb, and Wiig and Skarsgård are touching as leftover emblems of a passing age. " ‐Reason Online
Posted Aug 7, 2015

Fantastic Four (2015)

"A movie so dull and awkwardly structured that you wonder why anyone would dare telegraph a sequel at the end. " ‐Reason Online
Posted Aug 7, 2015

The End Of The Tour (2015)

"Features a starring performance by Jason Segel, playing David Foster Wallace, that will surely transform this actor's career. " ‐Reason Online
Posted Jul 31, 2015

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015)

"A precision-tooled action gizmo made by talented people who still take professional pride in turning this sort of thing out." ‐Reason Online
Posted Jul 31, 2015

Listen To Me Marlon (2015)

"A haunting documentary about a haunted man..." ‐Reason Online
Posted Jul 29, 2015

Southpaw (2015)

"Packed with raw energy, but doesn't quite knock you out..." ‐Reason Online
Posted Jul 24, 2015

Ant-Man (2015)

"Not the Marvel misfire that fans of the titular tiny guy might have expected, but it's still lumpy and trifling." ‐Reason Online
Posted Jul 16, 2015

Trainwreck (2015)

"Schumer delivers an avalanche of spectacularly sick lines and situations -- a titanic performance." ‐Reason Online
Posted Jul 16, 2015

Self/less (2015)

"A waste of the director's talent and our time." ‐Reason Online
